If you’ve ever gone bra shopping and come home with one that doesn’t fit right, you know how frustrating the experience can be. For such a small item of clothing, bras can be the hardest to buy. With that in mind, Neubodi, the foremost expert in lingerie fitting would like to share some bra fitting tips for making your next bra-shopping trip your best yet.
Know your breast and body type
Be aware of your breast shape, and also body type as so you would know exactly what bra style would fit you best. For example, if you are more a top-heavy breast shape, you will most likely be looking for full coverage bras, not demi cups.
Always get yourself fitted
Every woman should insist to get herself fitted prior to purchasing ANY bra. In this case, it is recommended that women should go to a Bra Fitting Specialist because buying a right-fitting innerwear goes beyond statistical measurements or simply by appearances of the bra. With so many different styles and designs available in the market, women are spoilt with choices, resorting in buying for “looks” rather than the “functions” of a bra.
Don’t lock yourself into one-cup size
Don’t be caught in a bra size trap. One should not assume that if you were an “A” cup in your twenties, you would still remain an “A” cup in your thirties. Your breast size basically changes over time due to hormonal changes, pregnancy, weight loss or gain etc. is why it is advisable to go to get yourself fitted every 6 months.
Be Open minded about your cup size
Women often think that they know their size well enough. For example, the most common remarks we get from our customers are “I have been fitted before, I don’t need you to tell me what size I am wearing”. In actual circumstances, not all bras in the same size fit the same way. One has to take into account the different bra styles (cutting and designs) available, and also the different sewing techniques and textile-based fabrics used to make a bra. In this case, always remember, bra size is just a number (and a letter). The proper fit of the bra is the most important part.
Check how your bra looks with your top on
With a fitted shirt, you can see the different shape effects a bra can provide and also what it does to your figure. A right-fitting bra should support your bustline to a right level --- you will see a well-defined natural cleavage, whittled waist, and trimmed arms. If you are purchasing a bra for a special occasion then (For example, bras from the Neubodi After Hours collection), always remember to bring the item along in store to ensure that you get the right fit under the trickiest neckline.
